HASH(0x9b322d5c) étoiles sur 5 Project Portfolio Management goes Agile 4 septembre 2009
Par Claude Emond - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Part of my work involves coaching organisations in implementing and improving their portfolio management processes. I religiously buy and read most of what is published on the subject in English or French. More than often, I had to conclude that this book or article I just read, I could have written myself... and done then only a half-job doing so. Most of the literature on the subject, I have seen up to now, talked a lot about mathematical scoring models, tools and techniques, addressing mostly the mechanics of the process. It never addressed the soul of the process, the Humans, and how to deal with the main challenge of portfolio management in this area, namely: "How do we get a whole organisation to live a common vision and be truly aligned and willing to make it happen through project work". Most of the books, that have been published, focus on best practices and techniques and do not discuss behavioural aspects as a key issue.....up to now!

"Manage Your Project Portfolio: Increase Your Capacity and Finish More Projects" is Johanna Rothman's third book. Her first two, "Behind Closed Doors: Secrets of Great Management" and "Manage It: Your Guide to Modern, Pragmatic Project Management" are real gems and won prices for their quality and usefulness. I do not hesitate to say that "Manage It" is one of the best books around for giving practical advice to project managers. Her last book, as her two others, is full of real life examples and little case studies that supports the principles, concepts and techniques offered. "Manage Your Project Portfolio" is really a very complete "How-to" book on how to set up and manage your project portfolio. This book addresses human aspects very well, including a very nice chapter dedicated to collaboration work in a portfolio management context (chapter 6). The chapter on metrics and measurement is also straight to the point (Chapter 10). Ms Rothman's top-notch practical advices and examples are found all over the place up to the last page, with a great last chapter titled "Start Somewhere...But Start", one of the best things to do when it is time to go forward with taking charge of your portfolio of projects.

I do believe this book gives a more complete view of what is at stake when dealing with project portfolio management and will really help organisations to move forward faster with implementing and improving this key business issue of the 21st century, the Project Age. A very inspiring book!

HASH(0x9b322db0) étoiles sur 5 A welcome addition to the agile body of knowledge 6 décembre 2010
Par J. Rasmusson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Managing a single project is easy.
Managing multiple projects is hard.

Yet this is the state most companies find them in. They've had success with agile at the individual project level, and now they are looking guidance on how to manage and track multiple agile projects in one complete portfolio.

Fortunately for us, Johanna Rothman gives us some valuable advice on exactly how to do that in Manage Your Project Portfolio - Increase Your Capacity and Finish More Projects.

Chalked full of great war stories and advice, Manage Your Project Portfolio shows you how to:

* Create a portfolio for your projects.
* How to rank, prioritize, and evaluate which ones you should be doing.
* How to socialize and collaborate on what you are delivering.
* As well has how to iterate and make decisions at the portfolio level (instead of always down at the project level).

I really like some of the sidebars and stories Johanna has collected. Johanna reminds us that:

Two part time people do not make one full-time equivalent.
Sometimes killing a project is the best thing you can do.
And my personal favorite - fund projects incrementally instead of all at once.

If you are looking for advice around what to measure when tracking your projects, how to come up with an actionable mission statement, or just how to effectively communicate the state of your portfolio ask Santa for a copy of Manage Your Project Portfolio. It could be exactly what your company is looking for going into the New Year.

HASH(0x9b399204) étoiles sur 5 Agile Project Management and Guidelines 30 août 2011
Par Randall Degges - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"Manage Your Project Portfolio" is another excellent Pragmatic Programmers book. If you've read any of the other Pragmatic Programmers books, then you know that the company publishes lots of high-quality books for developers, focusing on agile practices. Having read several other Pragmatic Programmers books, this book was definitely not a let down.

The main topic of this book is agile project management--how to collect, sort, rank, and execute lots of projects given limited time, scope, and manpower. While the ideas (like all agile ideas) are inherently simple and straightforward, agile project management is far from the norm in most organizations. This book analyzes project management from the ground up, starting off with the basics, and working up to the most intricate details and scenarios--all practical and useful.

**If you're trying to decide whether or not to purchase this book:** Buy. It. Now. This book is extremely well written, and packed with useful information that will help you (no matter what level of organization you're at) manage your projects more effectively, and greatly increase your overall project completion rate. As a technical lead myself, I found this information incredibly valuable. Don't wait! Get it :)

On to my full review! Below is the layout of the book, hopefully this gives you some idea of the content inside:

- Preface
- Meet Your Project Portfolio
- See Your Future
- Create the First Draft of Your Portfolio
- Evaluate Your Projects
- Rank the Portfolio
- Collaborate on the Portfolio
- Iterate on the Portfolio
- Make Portfolio Decisions
- Evolve Your Portfolio
- Measure the Essentials
- Define Your Mission
- Start Somewhere ... But Start

The book goes at a pretty even pace throughout, gradually explaining more and more details and process involved in project management. It's meant to be read through from start to finish (and should be, it's relatively short, only ~250 pages).

Overall, I really liked this book. I learned a lot about project management. Here are some of the gems:

- Multitasking is evil. Have people work on a single project at a time. This greatly improves performance and allows you to be agile in your management approach. You can calculate expected project completion times better, you'll get better feedback from your customers, you'll keep others happy with your transparency, etc.

- Collect *all* projects in the portfolio. Every single one should be collected. This way you have a single list of on-going projects, and can reference it without worrying about missing stuff.

- Each project needs to be reviewed at the end of each iteration (typically 1 -> 4 weeks). This lets you remain agile in your project approach. Should we continue with this project? Should we make adjustments to its goals? Should we kill it? Should we consider it at a later time?

- Any projects that aren't in progress, in the backlog, or killed should be in the parking lot. This is a special location that you'll go to periodically to revisit old ideas, and consider starting them.

- Wait till the last minute to commit to things (project funding, staffing, emergency requests, etc.). This will allow you to remain agile with your management.

Again--this was an awesome book. I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x9b3991ec) étoiles sur 5 Creating and using a project portfolio effectively 7 février 2010
Par Erik Gfesser - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Rothman's latest effort is all about how to create and use a project portfolio effectively. Note that while the author discusses how a collection of projects might together form real value, a program, this is not the focus of this book. After discussing project portfolio basics, the author discusses project evaluation, portfolio ranking, portfolio collaboration, portfolio iterations, portfolio decisions, portfolio evolution, and ends by addressing mission. This book was composed very well, and this reviewer especially found valuable the manner in which the author points to prerequisite areas of the book by page throughout in case the reader does not read sequentially. As Rothman indicates, a project portfolio is simply the organization of projects, by date and value, to which the associated organization commits or is planning to commit. A project portfolio helps the practitioner decide when to commit to a project so that a product development team can start or continue a project, understand when it is time to terminate a project so that a team might be freed for other work, determine when to transform a project and commit to the resultant project, and serve as a visual tool to help enable negotiation on how to tackle projects when it is difficult to decide what to do next.

The author points out that "if everyone in your organization (senior managers, middle managers, technical leads, functional managers, and project managers) is wedded to a serial life cycle and no one is willing to consider finishing valuable chunks of work frequently, you can't use a pragmatic approach to managing the project portfolio". In addition, "when your organization's management refuses to make a project portfolio, that lack of decision making is guaranteeing at least one or more schedule games. Or, people will decide which project to work on first, and that decision may not agree with yours. Without project portfolio management, you have more projects competing for the same - and limited - number of people. You find you can't commit to which people work on projects when, you're awash in emergency projects, and you and your staff are running yourselves ragged multitasking" which research has consistently shown to be unproductive. While "Manage Your Project Portfolio" is not a technical text by any means and is expected to be an easy read for most audiences, the author did decide to include a couple of very effective diagrams in the second chapter that if understood by the reader will help navigate the rest of the text by understanding what a project portfolio does for the organization, and what happens when no one manages the project portfolio.

In addition to providing new material, Rothman effectively ties in the insights of a number of other authors in this space, and this reviewer especially enjoyed seeing multiple references to Frederick P. Brooks and Gerald M. Weinberg. The manner in which the author incorporates agile philosophies is especially well done. Her discussion on velocity, both individual and team, for example, is quite effective. "Since I've been working in the field, my managers and clients have been trying to measure productivity. What a waste. Individual productivity means nothing. What does mean something is a team's throughput." While many readers might have already come to the same conclusion, Rothman really drives home this point. "If you try to measure individual productivity, you will get some data. And, the people whom you are measuring will game the data, have no fear. If you measure code, they'll write a ton. If you measure tests, they'll write a bazillion. If you measure files, they will have many more than the project needs. No matter what you measure, if it's not running, tested features, then they will game the system. Don't do it. But you say, I have several single-person projects. Surely I can measure that person's productivity. Um, no, you can't. First, I doubt that those people resist talking to each other. Second, how will you compare productivity? If Davey gets the easy projects and Sally gets the hard ones, who is more productive? I can't tell, and neither can you. Stop trying."

HASH(0x9b3995b8) étoiles sur 5 Perfect for agile adoption with multiple teams and products 9 novembre 2009
Par Declan P. Whelan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
There are a wealth of books and online resources for single project agile teams. I am working with an organization grappling with adopting agile across multiple teams and product lines. We found it challenging to extend and adapt agile principles and practices to our situation. Johanna's book provided us both a framework and mindset to tackle multi-team, multi-product agile adoption. If you are working with an organization that has more than one agile team or more than one product this book is an invaluable resource.

I can't recommend this book highly enough!
